Etchemendy, Nancy

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1952-    ) US author of some sf novels for Young Adult readers. The Watchers of Space (1980) and its sequel The Crystal City (1985) are Space Operas with a contemplative edge; other titles include Stranger from the Stars (1983) and The Power of Un (2000), a Time Travel tale which emphasizes the moral fixity of that which has already occurred. Her short fiction, beginning with "Clotaire's Balloon" (November 1984 F&SF) and much of it assembled as Cat in Glass and Other Tales of the Unnatural (coll 2002), tends to be richly coloured, wry fantasy. She has also written some sf and fantasy Poetry. [JC]
